CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Illinois running back Donovonn Young has no plans to transfer and will return to the Illini football team next season, head coach Tim Beckman confirmed Wednesday.  There had been some rumors that the Houston, Tex.-native was leaving the team after a lackluster last two seasons, but Beckman says those rumors are false.

Young showed signs of being an explosive player as a freshman, but he struggled last season rushing for just 400 yards and three touchdowns.
